K.M. Krebs - The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It [wh065]
The Light Will Fill the Darkness and Obliterate It
is a poetic and richly textured work by Canadian sound artist K.M. Krebs. These tracks are blended together into a shifting exploration as evocative and powerful as the titles they bear. I find this to be excellent headphone music, and with eyes closed I am easily abducted into very strange realms.
K.M. Krebs has become a well-known and respected artist in the netlabel scene. As K.M. Krebs he recorded the classic "Halberd of Chemistry" (available at Fukk God Records), and as 833-45 he recorded "Solar Cycle 23" which is a popular release at Autoplate Records.

The sounds in this album seem to come from some mythic realm-- a kingdom or pashahood, perhaps, of the imagination. . . metallic and other textures mingle delightfully. The tone is neither too playful nor too serious-- but just perfect for invoking fascinated listening. This is my favorite so far of this artist's works!
